Facebook readers lack comprehension skills

Facebook had an article from Breitbart about AOC this morning. I don’t even remember what it was about. I do remember the reaction I got to a comment I made. I simply made the comment that she had a lot of gumption and imagine what it would be like if Republicans had half the spunk she did?

Well! That certainly didn’t sit well with the brain trust on Facebook. Show them a picture of AOC and its like ringing Pavlov’s bell, they begin salivating and attacking immediately! They began to tell me that I had called her smart and that in fact she was dumb! They told me that I had said she was good for America and that she was bad for America!

They also told me that I had called her a capitalist when in fact she was a socialist! I came away from the experience convinced the average Facebook visitor read at the level of a 3rd grader. They don’t read for comprehension, its more of an interpretive reading thing they have going on.

They interpret what you say in a wildly different manner then what you actually said. I had simply said she had courage, and wouldn’t it be remarkable if the Republicans had some of that? That’s all. It was just amazing the reaction I got. People that stupid are driving on our highways? Operating dangerous equipment? Voting? Living next-door? That’s scary!
